Standing About in a Stupid Manner
(photo from despair.com)
One of my goals in Fight Class is to learn how to avoid getting hit. You may be thinking, "Well, DUH!", but actually, getting hit is part of boxing. It's good to learn what that feels like and how to respond. But currently, after I throw a punch, I stand around and, of course, get nailed. I need to move out of the way. The problem is that everything happens so fast! By the time I register that I landed (or missed) my shot, I am already recoiling from my partner's.
So, for my sake, here's is a short lesson in How to Dodge a Punch. Pardon me while I watch it. Repeatedly. Maybe it'll eventually sink in!
